Jags to be Captain and spurn england talk as he takes the prem by storm!! wont get a call up like but hey!
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is back on Merseyside following his family holiday.
Rafa's already completed his first major signing, his new Liverpool contract, and he's now in his office working on his summer targets including Daniel Alves.
Chief executive Rick Parry is currently working on that deal but he's unhappy with some technicalities of the proposed transfer.
The initial transfer fee isn't causing the problem, it's other financial aspects of the deal that could be triggered that are a concern, which could see the fee rise over time.
Meanwhile Insider sources are reporting that Rick Parry is due to meet with football agent Franck Belhassen after the World Cup finals.
There's also talk of the Reds ending their interest in a striker who showed little desire in wearing the Red shirt of Liverpool. He's subsequently signed for Bayern Munich it would seem.
to the person who said pernia will sign for chelsea from getafe you are wrong as he has already agreed to join athletico madrid

In part excahnge nigel reo coker will go 2 man utd with LOUIS SAHA goin 2 west ham , plus man utd paying us 5 mil , which will b spent or joey barton or jermaine pennant
Glasgow awash with rumours of transfer activity from Wee Gordon Strachan. Interest in Kadlec now at an end due to overpricing by Sparta Prague, WGS to follow up interest in Quinton Fortune provided medical is A ok. If not some outlandish whispers suggest a certain aged Milanese left back might be prepared to finish his career with a season in the hoops. Surely Not ?
Meantime little doubt Hartson to be dispensed with alongside Petrov, Nakamura, Thompson and Dublin. Fees and saved wages will allow spending on a fee and decent wages for the Dane plus enough for a further raid upon Easter Road for Scott Brown . The big splurge however will be on filling the gap left by Hartson up front. Expect a brief return to the big spending days of 2000 and 2001 with a bid for unsettled Spur Robbie Keane.
aswell as all confirmed transfers Aurelio, Somoza etc LFC will bring in
Alves 5.2 million plus future incentives
Kuyt 9 million
Bent 6 million plus future incentves
Aimar 4.8 million (possible straight swap with Garcia mooted)
Pennant, defoe backup
Swindon Town to sign Carl Asaba over the next few weeks. He's been seen at the County Ground over the past few days and is mates with Dennis Wise.
I was enjoying a nice Big Tasty in a McDonalds restuarant in Switzerland last week when Adriano appeared out of the toilets!!! I asked him about any interest from clubs and he said that he would love to join Arsenal to partner Henry up front. I found out that Brazils training camp was only up the road. Expect to see Adriano at the emirates next season!!! Barry Evans
I am a good pal with former Luton defender Curtis Davies. We played in the Luton youth team around 5 years ago and he told me on the phone that he would much prefer a move to Tottenhams neighbours Arsenal because he would love the chance to play in Europe, youth players get played at Arsenal and he would also love to play in their fabulous new ground next season. Curtis Davies to Arsenal!!! U heard it here first! Iva Biggun
Adriano 2 Arsenal next season in a swap deal involving around £18 million plus Sol Campbell and Lupoli. !!!Aidan Macca!!!
Yesterday I gave you LFC news but i forgot to put these on:
Before World Cup:
Fabio Aurelio--------- £FREE
Victor may also sign as back up for a 1st choice on a free and Paul Anderson will get a few chances next season. Adam Hamill will also get a few chances (mostly Carling Cup).
NB: The Aimar deal is close to completion.
To the guy that said Arsenal are getting Sebastian Frey from Fiorentina. NOT POSSIBLE! He was only loaned out to Fiorentina from Parma and has recently made a permanent transfer to Fiorentina. It's against the rules to change clubs two times in the same transferwindow. Fernando Torres is not going anywhere either. Atlético are looking to win the league after signings of Seitaridis, Costinha and Aguero aswell as the new manager Aguirre.
I have just that a member of the french world cup squad will be flying into glasgow on tuesday to sign for rangers. there is going to be a huge police presence which suggests that it will be a big name. it is still unclear who it will be although it may well be cisse or zidane as a coach
tranfers for all teams
Manchester City: Adebayor
Manchester United: Joaquin
Sheffield United: Heskey
West Ham: Bowyer
I reckon that Ruud will hop over the alps to Italy and Milan pretty soon, Utd will put the pressure on them cos they know that that they now need a new striker, (in respects to Sheva leaving). They will also put on pressure because they know how much money Milan recieved, and so will be able to afford Utd's high valueation. Expect a bid in the region of 15-20mill. Mascherano is now having medicals i've heard and the deal will soon be done, along with kerlon. Fergie is tryin to get all the deals over before the world cup because he knows the players are good and so will perform well on the wolrd-stage (pushing their values up).
Adriano to Real Madrid? I really hope so! because I doubt he will come to Man Utd unless a spectaular turn of luck comes our way. The reason i then hope he goes to R.Madrid is that then Chelsea cant get him for a few years. Imagine how good they'd be with Sheva nd Adriano!
These are all true. Thomas Graveson will come after the Real Madrid Presidentional Elections, along with him will come Kadelec but the talks are 50-50 at the moment,Martin Petrov to come in atempts to keep Stillen although he was class for Wolfsburg at a time, Denilson might come and Swyzcorth or something like that will come aswell as Fortune.
Players going out are Hartson, Lennon, Varga and some young players along with Marshall will go out on loan.
Wilson McManus Balde Kadelec
S.Petrov Nakamura Keane/Swyzcorth M.Petrov
Spanish youngster Raul Garcia of Osasuna is a transfer target for West Ham and Assuncao of Real Betis is also being followed by Alan Pardew
LFC = Kuyt, Bellamy, Aimar, Alves, Aurelio and lots of young talent
Jose Mourinho won't stop strengthening his squad, despite his early transfer activity this summer. Chelsea have already signed Andrei Shevchenko, Hilario, Jon Obi Mikel, Michael Ballack and Salomon Kalou, but I have heard a few whispers that they're still preparing moves for Mariano Pernia of Getafe, Alessandro Nesta of AC Milan who could be tempted following Shevchenko's decision to join, and also Aaron Lennon of Tottenham.
wel this summer is going 2 be the most eventful 4 transfer activity yet. with chelsea already buying 2 world class players i can c more 2 cum so they can eventually conquer the world. but manchester united will not let chelsea walk over them and wil make sum descent signings themselves as SAF looks 2 rebuild. united defo need a strong and commanding midfielder 2 replace the legend roy keane (if possible) somebody like the touted Mascherano wud defo fill the bill. he wud have ad experience at a world cup, he is tough, hard working n covers every blade of grass. he wud cost in the region of 10mil but he would be worth every penny. if that falls through for sum reason then SAF will persue 1 of the following: De Rossi, cambiasso, carrick, manuel fernandes, a.petit or j.makoun. united will then look 2 sign an attacking midfielder 2 replace the ageing paul scholes. Juan Riquelme wil be signed 2 form an argentinian central midfield which will provide balance in the middle and will mean the central midfielders will be able 2 understand each other because of the language meaning they will gel instantly, they will get their man for 10mil. Fergie is also interested in a winger on either flank as ronaldo is at home on either side. ribery has been strongly linked as the marseille coach was sacked the other day and he now feels unhappy at marseille at the fact the coach was sacked. he wouldnt be as hard 2 sign as the rest as he will have an EU passport and the other interested clubs(lyon and spurs) dont have the same financial muscle as manchester united. he will be bought 4 around 8million. the midfeild will then be complete and will be a formidable force. as Ruuds departure is almost certain(im quite sad 2 see him go as i feel he still is a world class player and a valuable goalscorer, he will play his football at AC milan as Shevas replacement). Fergie will sign a top striker 2 grab goals dnt be surprised 2 see a corker in this posistion, the options are: D.Suazo, Z.Ibrahim
ovic, F.Torres, D.Villa, J.Defoe, D.Bent, K.Huntelaar, O.Martins, L.Toni and D.Kuyt. personally i think the turmoil at juve could force zlatan 2 move 2 united he is a simuilar frame 2 van nistelrooy and does a simuilar job, tho he has a bit more flair but on the downside does get a bit hot-headed and mardy at times. also Fergie has always admired Defoe and i could see him pinching him for next to nothing from tottenham as he is unhappy and doesnt future in martin jols plans he would be a snip around 8mil. united will also make a few smaller signings here and there and here are my predictions: T.Kucsczak-2mil, kelon-5mil (will be loaned out so he can be granted a EU passport in the future, will replace riquelme in years 2 cum). United team nxt year: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>GK-E.Van Der Sar>>>>>>>>>>>>>>RB-G.Neville>>>>>>>>>>>>>CB-R.Ferdinand>>>>>>>>>>>>CB-N.Vidic>>>>>>>>>>>>>LB-G.Heinze>>>>>>>>>>>>RM-F.Ribery>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>CM-J.Mascherano>>>>>CM-J.R.Riquelme>>>>>>>>>>>>>>LM-C.Ronaldo>>>>>>ST-J.Defoe>>>>>>>>>>>>>ST-W.Rooney
Gravesen to Celtic for 2M, Woodgate also for free on a 20K basic and bonuses on games played.
Also Celtic are looking at Johan VONLANTHEN
Out Petrov to B-Munich ( the Ballack replacement) or to Roma who are selling De Rossi to Man Utd. Either way it's going to be between 6-8Million.
Hartson will be moving to Man City for 650K but this will free up a lot of wages, as will Lennon who is off to Sheff Utd.
Varga will move to Leeds on a free also
Marshall on loan to Cardiff
Luke Young wants to leave Charlton because the club want money bought in from Darren Bent, who is heading to Liverpool
It is unlike AW to spend on a player such huge figures as an Adriano deal will require. Furthermore, I think Fernando Torres will be cheaper for comparable delivery and Torres is more level-headed. Concerning the midfield, Arsenal needs someone to grow into Gilberto's role, not all these attacking midfielders people keep talking about. I think AW will go for Jean II Makoun for that role.
RUMOUR LAUNCHED BY STEAUA'S PRESIDENT (OWNER)
Anthony da Silva (Porto or Benfica, don't remember) is going to UEFA Cup semifinalist, Steaua Bucharest.
FACT MENTIONED BY STEAUA'S MANAGER
Ajax will buy George Ogararu (Steaua's right wing defender) for a fee of 3 mil euros.
Shevchenko signed with Chelsea, he'll have number 7 on his shirt.
Ballack signed with Chelsea and declared himself happy with Sheva coming there.
Adriano goes to Real Madrid, RVN probably to Inter, Cambiasso signed with Man U.
Barcelona recently contacted, once more, Cristian Chivu, AS Roma's central-left defender. Milan hasn't shown interest in him lately (in public statements, they haven't mentioned him anymore). One of Real Madrid's scouters also contacted him and asked him not to take any decisions until after the World Cup, so they (Real) will be able to discuss with him a possible transfer without the pressure of this international competition.
